Guiding Questions

Before your read this section, consider the following questions:

  • What are the attributes of a peacemaker? Think of famous peacemakers (Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Mandela). What characteristics did they have that made them peacebuilders?
  • What are the attributes of a peace educators?



This section is designed to help teachers integrate peace education pedagogies into their classroom practices.  To help you in that process, we have provived a list of guiding attributes for a peace educator, followed by various pedagogical approaches, all of which can be categorized under the heading of experiential education.

This lesson contains the following sections:

  • Attributes of a Peace Educator
  • Experiential Education
    • Holistic Education
    • Participatory Education
    • Cooperative Learning

  These are all contained under the general theme of Teaching and Learning Approaches. However, we have we have separated them into separate sections so as to make it possible to use them as separate lessons. You can study as one lesson or as 5 separate lessons.

Hi Konrad and Julia,
As per Konrad's request, I uploaded my comments about this section to the site in the pages and files area (since it was too many characters to just post as a comment here).

Hey Megan,
I read your comments. Thanks--I really appreciate them!
You are welcome to go ahead and implement any of the changes that you want, or you can leave them to me. Whatever you would prefer. I currently working on the classroom practices section, which has become monstruously long, and therefore making editing take forever
If you don´t want to work on the substantive edits to the section but you want to do the formatting--that would be amazing! As is evident in my entries I am definitely not good at formatting.
But please, take on editing whatever aspects you want to and just let me know if you if there are any changes that you didn´t get to!
